Eltingville Club #1
by Evan Dorkin
Amongst comics nerds in the know, Dorkin's Eltingville Club is the stuff of legend. It's kind of like Big Bang Theory - but for the sort of people that Big Bang Theory exploits and mocks.
by Noelle Stevenson / Grace Ellis / Brooke A. Allen
The first issue of a new limited series, Lumberjanes is sort of Buffy The Vampire Slayer at a Girl Scout camp.
